The history of this district is full of lights and shadows.
When Napoleon the 3rd ruled, Paris became so crowded
than some of them went to Montmartre. The hill above
Paris became a new center.
If you want to picture a Bohemian, this is the place!

I always recommend going by funicular to Montmartre: it’s less tiring! But you can choose the stairs too. You might live a new exciting moment step by step.

  • My Tips

     Take always small change with you! If you will need a public bathroom, you will probably pay 0.50 € to enter. 

     

    Remember that floor numbers aren't the same of U.S. ones. In Europe we have ground floor / floor 0. It is the corresponding of the 1st floor in U.S.!

     

     French people are nationalists: try to speak few French words. You will make them very happy!

     

     Check the weather forecast in advance so you will know what to put in your luggage!

     

     Even if they say it will be sunny all the time, take your umbrella with you anyway.

     

     Read my article about transports pass to know which one is the best for you!

     

     If you want to buy something very luxurious, go to Lafayette Galleries.

     

     Don't be worried about the need for a car in Paris. Taxis and Uber are a lot!

     

     For your safety, provide you a travel insurance
